DeKalb County Arrest Warrants
Both the Sheriff’s Office and the DeKalb County Police Department execute arrest warrants. It generally takes at least two days from the date of issuance for warrants to be processed and placed in active status for service. The District Attorney or Solicitor notifies the prosecutor and defendant by mail or subpoena of the court date. Inquiries concerning the status of warrants may be made three days after the date of issuance by calling the Sheriff’s Office Warrant Unit at 404-298-8200.
